Walking on water ?

Mainsheets 2021



This past year has been difficult for us all no matter where in the world you may live but I hope our sport has given us some welcome relief from some of the restrictions and social distancing imposed. After a good end to 2020 we enter 2021 under a tier 4 lockdown which means that until further notice we are not able to take to the water. After all that went on over the last 9 months or so let’s hope for a less stressful year ahead, be it that maybe the first two / three months may well still be disrupted by Covid-19.

The clubs sailing season drew to a close on a high with 10 one meters (would have been eleven but Vinnie volunteered to do race officer instead of racing) taking to the water on the 19th December, long may it continue. Also, both the 6M and R6M have seen an increase in numbers towards the end of the year so all fleets are looking heathy going into 2021.

Club Membership has also increased for 2021 and I welcome all the new members to the club and hope you enjoy the season ahead.

Please find attached a separate sheet with the overall results for the 2020 season. Hopefully we be able to hold a prize giving of sorts once the tier 4 restrictions are lifted.

I am sure you would also like to join me in thanking Geoff for taking the time out to creosote the shed for us during the period prior to the Christmas holidays. Things people will do to get out of the Christmas shopping. Next projects on the list are a) replacement of the window covers on the main shed and b) is the new rescue boat once the fine weather returns. This will need a fair amount of work as all the gunnels will need replacing. If anyone has any wood that might be appropriate do let the club know as we need to keep the refurbishment cost to a minable level.

As regards to sailing I do not intend to start the 2021 season till at the earliest the first Wednesday in March, thus allowing the currant Covid-19 to take its course over the next two months. I am also proposing some radical changes to our schedule but more of that at a later date once I have spoken to the other committee members about the proposed changes. I will then circulate them round all the members for your thoughts.

That’s all for now folks, I will keep you posed as and when I have further news re sailing and in the meantime can I wish you all  “Happy New Year” and stay safe.
